lots of news.Hello New Hoper's! The first thing I want to do is to let you know that my Parents and all of the people in the region of our China Campus are OK. They were not affected by the earthquake. It was located to the northwest from where they live. Thanks so much to all of you who called and e-mailed your concerns. Please continue to PRAY for those affected in CHINA from the earthquake and MYANMAR from the cyclone . What DEVASTATION the world is seeing recently. May God show HIS power and compassion and bring the focus to HIM. This did not take our God by surprise. Our hearts must ache as HIS does and we must PRAY.
Next, last weekend was amazing. If you were with us on any of our MOTHER'S DAY services...they were amazing. Our LADIES were blessed in big ways as we served them by setting up a SPA with massages, hand waxing, lots of FOOD, free flowers, and many other touches that showed how much we value them. Tiffany, Melinda and Nikki did a great job sharing from their HEARTS. It was a great day, for all, not just the ladies! Thanks to all our STAFF and VOLUNTEERS for pouring out their HEARTS to serve our LADIES!
Please don't forget that we need to continue to head out to Landoll's Castle to help with the clean-up when you can. Let's be a huge BLESSING in Jesus name. They self-insured the restaurant, which means that they need all the help they can get. Call the church office with any questions. We will also hopefully be sending some relief to their workers when our budget allows. Last weekend though well-attended was not strong with regulars as some couldn't come on Saturday, and our giving was down. We expect to be back to normal this weekend, and that will allow us to help their workers from the overflow of our GENEROSITY. Let's keep pressing on!
The final few weeks in our HOW series are going to be amazing. You won't want to miss them. I am beyond excited about what I am teaching on this weekend. Bring a friend or 2 and let's continue to pray for ALL our CAMPUSES and for our ability to INVEST and INVITE and use our TIME, TALENTS and TREASURE to keep ROCKING our COMMUNITIES for CHRIST! I love this place. There are some HUGE things that are happening. WHY? The POWER OF ALL OF US.
blessings, peace and healing to all around the world who need HIS TOUCH right now.
